Illustration for article titled 20 Million Digital Photo Frames to be Sold to 20 Million Tacky Idiots in 2008

It's official: you people have no taste. How else to explain that 20 million digital photo frames are expected to be sold in 2008? Yes, 20,000,000 digital photo frames, the red-headed stepchildren of the consumer electronics world, will soon adorn the walls of McMansions in every backwater suburb in the country.

There's no amount of functionality you can cram into a digital photo frame to make it a worthwhile product. Until e-ink reaches a point where it can be used in digital frames so they look like actual photographs and don't suck up energy 24 hours a day, they're just going to be glorified little computer displays that make your home look terrible. I don't care that they can be updated from afar or play slideshows: they suck. Don't waste your money on these things and encourage more companies to spam the marketplace with them, I beg you. You're only hurting yourselves here, people. [Digitimes]

We..uh..love them.

Love the small key chain ones, the 4x6 ones with the interchangeable frames, and the painting-size version on the wall when the we are not watching a program.

The SlideShow function is actually the most used feature on our iPod Touch!

We are hoping to convert all of our analog ones to digital by the end of the year....
